prosecutors and defense attorneys will start calling witnesses today to testify as to manning's motives behind his disclosure and what impact his actions had on national security. manning's defense continues to argue that their client was simply naive in leaking information but harbored no evil intent. manning was trying to spark a conversation about foreign policy. meanwhile, the senate judiciary committee is holding a hearing today to ask some top administration officials about the united states domestic surveillance programs. number to officials from justice, the fbi, the nsa are all expected to appear. senators also going to hear from the top lawyer at the office of the director of national intelligence and a former fisa court judge. last week, the house narrowly voted down a measure to essentially shutter the nsa's secret collection of phone records but said of patrick leahy, the chairman of the judiciary committee has a bill pending that would put limitations on what the government can collect and beef up congressional and judicial oversight of such initiatives. the white

one thing to my own surprise in boehner's defense which is that even if he is for it, it may be a little bit early for him to tip his hand because that gives the opposition time to generate more opposition. but, it still will remain a huge question as to whether he will permit this to come to the floor. the sort of gossip or open secret in washington right now is that if he does and if it passes and if the republican base is as furious as everybody expects them to be, that might be the end of his speakership. he would have to make that decision, knowing that, you know, his days as speaker might be be numbered. >> john: the g.o.p.-led house as you know, has passed the fewest bills since they began keeping track of this back in 1947. so, michael, what does it say about john boehner's leadership when he qualified his party's inaction by saying it is not how many laws you pass but by how many you repeal. they're only working nine days the entire month of september. >> absolutely shocking statement and actually, my column that will be up tomorrow morning on the "daily beast" is about t
